Well, the seller does describe the condition as 'Acceptable'. I always wonder what that means; 'acceptable' to whom?

But later in the description, the condition is downgraded (I suppose) to 'good'.

"GEORG ALLEN & UNWIN LTD

second impression 1962

hard cover + jacket

63 + 1 page

good condition"

What's the '+1' page, I wonder?

This is not a real term in describing books, and can only mean that the seller thinks that the book is okay and the buyer would accept that.

Which is why it is a meaningless description.

The buyer has to decide for themselves if they are happy with the books condition, and they can not do that until they have received the book and looked at it.

The description is limited to two words; "Limited edition."

Not quite sure what the naked lady painting in the background has to do with Hobbits...
